OUR CHARITY POLICY
We receive many requests from charities and organisations seeking donations or prizes. We would love to support everyone, sadly, this is not possible. Our policy is to reply positively to requests from our customers, as a thank you for their support to us. In addition to customer’s request, we regularly offer prizes to many local organisations, including; Callington Rotary Club, Callington Lions, Stoke Climsland Primary School, Friends of Stoke Climsland Church and local scouting groups.
We also raise funds for Genesis Research Trust, the charity founded by Lord Robert Winston. Genesis Research Trust raises money for the largest UK-based collection of scientists and clinicians who are researching the causes and cures for conditions that affect the health of women and babies. The objectives of the Trust are to provide financial assistance for medical research and teaching in the field of gynaecology, obstetrics and related fields in paediatrics.
The Trust’s fundamental aim is to ensure that women have ongoing good health throughout their lives and that more women have a normal pregnancy and a healthy baby.

In May 2015 Gail will take part in her fifth Charity Cycle Challenge to raise funds for the Trust. This time she will be joined by her cycling buddy, Annette. They are cycling the Devon and Cornwall stages of the John O’Groats to Lands End Cycle Challenge. Once again cycling alongside Fern Britton and renewing friendships with many other women from previous challenges.
Gail has undertaken Charity Cycle challenges in Cuba, has cycled across the Jordan Desert from The Dead Sea to the Red Sea, Cycle China and cycled though Vietnam and Cambodia. So far we have raised about £16,000 and fund raising continues.
We have arranged several fund raising charity events for this charity.
